The Systems We Caste is a collection of poems inspired by the harrowing nature of discrimination and violence. The narration interrogates the fabric of casual exploitation which is unnoticed in day-to-day life, slipping into a profound expression of grief. Neal's poems express both a personal and global journey, all embedded in the microscopic tales woven from the lives of ordinary individuals. In this collection, Neal reflects with visceral imagery and sensuous language on the continued victimization of the lower rungs of society.
